Description
Hailed as "an astoundingly good novel" by Gillian Flynn, author of the #1 "New York Times" bestseller "Gone Girl," and winner of the 2014 Kentucky Literary Award, "The Next Time You See Me" is a gripping tale of mystery, desperation, and redemption.
When a small Southern town's most fiery single woman is found dead in the woods, it's not just her secrets that threaten to surface. There's Ronnie's sister, Susanna, a dutiful but dissatisfied schoolteacher, mother, and wife; Tony, a failed baseball star turned detective; Emily, a socially awkward thirteen-year-old with a dark secret; and Wyatt, a factory worker tormented by a past he can't change and by a love he doesn't think he deserves.
Connected in ways they cannot begin to imagine, their stories converge in a violent climax that reveals not just the mystery of what happened to Ronnie, but all of their secret selves. Praised as "immensely satisfying and skillful" by Kate Atkinson, author of "New York Times" bestseller "Life After Life," "The Next Time You See Me" is a debut novel not to be missed.
